Pre-purchase Home and Property Tree Inspection
When you buy a new home, you want everything to be perfect. It needs to be safe, secure, and in accordance with all regulations. No one wants to have a surprise fixer-upper.
In the process of examining a home, it’s easy to focus on interior aspects like electrical and plumbing. But don’t forget the exterior. Getting a tree inspection can give you peace of mind — and save you hundreds of dollars down the line.
How Tree Inspection Services Help
At a glance, a tree may look sturdy, but you don’t want it to come crashing down in the first storm. Fallen branches can damage your roof and gutters, come into contact with power lines, and make your property unsafe. Even a tree that has held up for decades can have hidden problems.
During a tree inspection, our professional ISA Certified Arborist® will check for the following:
- Structural defects
- Disease issues
- Decayed areas
- Invasive root concerns
- Major root loss
- Pest problems
If Tree Inspection Uncovers a Problem
If we find an issue with a tree on the property, it does not necessarily mean you should not buy the house, but it may affect your decision. We will recommend next steps such as pruning, wind-sailing, raising and balancing, or lacing. These techniques can leave the tree intact while removing select branches, deadwood, or excess growth. That way you can enjoy the beauty, fresh air, and shade of the tree without worrying it is a liability. In extreme cases, we may recommend tree removal.
